Abstract

Introduction : For day case surgery to be effective, morbidity must be minimized. The choice of anaesthetic agent and technique is critical. Sevoflurane or propofol may be ideal agents owing to smooth, rapid induction and emergence and less PONV. This study aimed to compare these properties and adverse effects of sevoflurane and propofol. Material and Method Prospective study on 100 patients of ASA I or II, aged 18 to 70 years, scheduled for elective day case surgeries under general anaesthesia. Patients assigned randomly to one of two study groups: Group P/H, i.v. propofol (with lidocaine) induction and halothane/nitrous oxide maintenance; and Group S, sevoflurane/nitrous oxide induction and maintenance. Results Sevoflurane was associated with higher PONV than propofol/halothane, more adverse events during induction and agitation and distress in recovery
